Hello Amerywu. This is a very good essay that explains cultural mediation well, but needs work to change it into a Wikipedia article. I've tagged it with links to helpful info on wikifying and general article-writing guidelines, and I'll try to put some work in on it too when I get some more time.

Re Cultural mediation[edit]

Thanks for looking at the article. I was wondering if you could give specific advice on how to make the article conform with wikipedia standartds so I can get the tags removed. Important note. As a graduate student of Vygotsky, I have found that the birthday cake example is a very powerful way of explaining the theory of cultural mediation. Without it, most people under-estimate the power and all encompassing nature of cultural mediation. So I wopuld like to keep the example while mmeeting wiki standards. amerywu Feb 20, 2007

Hi, thanks for the article. I have put a dispute tag against the date given in your example. Elsewhere in Wikipedia the dates of Vygotsky are given as 1896 – 1934. I can't figure what the correct date would then be for your quote. LookingGlass

There is nothing dubious about that. Please, see the history of Vygotsky's legacy in the West... Oh, as to the "correct" date: the work "The history of development of higher mental functions" was written in 1931 and first published in Russian in 1960. --Yasya 11:24, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

No citation, and article seems to be solely sourced from a single proponent of the topic. (talk) 22:15, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
